Dining outside under a tent on a warm summer evening is always enjoyable. The kids delicious food and friendly professional service made the experience perfect. One of our favorite restaurants. Looking forward to returning soon.

618 has created an excellent environment outdoors to allow us to enjoy a terrific meal while dealing with the current conditions.
Despite clueless Murphy’s political motives, restaurants like this battle through.

We were seated within a few minutes of our reservation time and treated to outstanding service by our server Gianna. Drinks were on our table in seconds and our order was taken .

We enjoyed our favorite apps, Grandmas Meatballs and a nice seasonal salad. Entree of choice was the Chicken Milanese which is always plentiful and cooked perfectly. Gelato desert choices rounded out a great evening .
They just seem to get it here (customer service) and we will continue to support great local restaurants like 618.

My wife and I went to celebrate our wedding anniversary and couldn't ask for a better experience! Our server, Evan, was highly attentive and the food was fantastic. My wife and the angry shrimp pasta dish and I had the skirt steak. So much flavor! Even with a thunderstorm threatening, our server surprised us with a dessert on the house with a big sparkler! Very sweet and caring. We will be going back soon!!

This was our first time there and won't be our last. First of all, our server, I think his name was Evan, was attentive and very helpful. They took the COVID precautions seriously. We had the Hummus appetizer and my wife had the Shrimp and Grits and I had the Lobster Ravioli. Both were excellent. If you like Shrimp and Grits we have never seen it better anywhere in NJ. The hummus was light and airy with caramelized Brussel Sprouts. The ravioli's were fresh made and tasted like pockets of the sea. Had the toffee dessert with brown butter which was also good, but we had to take it home because we were full. Their ice cream based desserts look amazing, I wish we had room. Can't wait to go back again and try out different items on their menu. Gret job!

Everything was amazing from start to finish. The food was spectacular, drinks were delicious, and our server Evan was awesome for our large party of 8. They even brought an ice cream dessert with a big sparkling candle for our friend’s birthday. Cajun shrimp & grits are James Beard award winning and I know why, soooo delicious!! You will spend some money here but honestly it’s so worth it. We will be back!
